Great book but one queryby Elaine

5 stars out of 5

How To Make Chocolates

This is a lovely book, full of lots of great tips and recipes. I do, however, have one query: paragraph 3 on page 9 says that chocolate should be allowed to melt slowly in a bowl over a pan of hot water for 3 to 4 HOURS. Surely this is wrong? In my experience, it only takes minutes to melt chocolate to the right consistency. Is this a typo or am I missing something? Could someone please confirm?

A note from the team: Thank you for placing your review. We're pleased you're happy with the book. There is no typo when it comes to the length of time to melt the chocolate. It is recommended and if you have the time to melt for this length of time to achieve a richer and shinier finish to your home made creations

Demystifies the art of chocolate makingby Pat

How To Make Chocolates

A great little book which explains the processes simply and clearly. Would recommend using slightly less than 600gms if using the Lakeland slab. Tricky to keep it on the slab when spreading. As pointed out in another review, the recipe for salted caramel omits when to add the salt. I realised this too late and added the salt after the cream which meant the salt didn't dissolve and my caramels have quite a crunchy, salty hit. Lesson learned for next time!

How To Make Chocolates

I love making chocolates, but have never considered mine to be that good, but this little book is excellent. I love the firm cover and pages. Clear detailed instructions. Lots of useful hints and tips. Can't wait to get started on making 'proper' chocolates to wow the family.

A few publishing errorsby Paul

How To Make Chocolates

Although I think this is a great little book, I did find a couple of errors within. On page 9 it advises you to allow the chocolate to melt slowly for 3 to 4 hours! Surely this should be minutes. Then the salted caramel recipe on page 29 fails to to tell you when to add the salt.

A note from the team: Thank you for placing your review. The melting of the chocolate slowly for 3 - 4 hours is correct. It is recommended to always melt your chocolate slowly on a very gentle heat. This will help give you a super shine texture to your chocolate. The Sea salted caramel recipe - The salt should be added to the mix in point 1 in the method with the butter and sugar. Our apologies this was missed from this publication. We will rectify this for the next print.

Brilliant little book!by Virginia

How To Make Chocolates

This is a lovely little book, very motivating for a beginner to chocolate making. It's spiral bound, with cardboard pages that sit flat on the worktop and could be sponged if necessary. The clear instructions and recipes, and the full-colour illustrations, made me just want to have a go. But beware - it should come with a health warning- I've just gone on to the Lakeland site and ordered a lot of chocolate-making equipment I didn't know I needed before I read this book!
